Mayli Turns 6!!!

Mayli Elizabeth turned 6 on December 5! She is growing up way too fast. The other day I was watching videos of the girls when they were younger and realized how fast time is flying by. The quote, "This moment will never come again...enjoy it" rings so true to life. Each and every moment will only come once and we truly need to make the most of them.

Our little baby was so tiny and in the blink of an eye turned 1...

She loved making us laugh

And now she is grown into a beautiful young lady.

Mayli started Kindergarten this year and is learning so much. She loves to learn and every day will come home and tell me something new she has learned. She already is on level B in reading and can count to 100 by 1's, 2's, and 10's. She loves to read and loves to write things. She likes boys a lot already (eek) and this year has already had 3 different crushes but her latest she's had for a couple months now. :) She loves to dance still and loves to sing too. Her favorite color is a rainbow. She loves to play with her sisters and her friends. She also really likes riding her bike, playing on her scooter, and riding her skateboard. Her favorite candy bar is a 3 Musketeers and she loves to chew gum. Mayli is very kind hearted and if someone has less than her she will willingly give all she has to them. For instance a while ago my girls and their cousins each got a stuffed cat at Halloween. One of Mayli's cousins lost her cat on the walk home and was so sad she couldn't find it. Mayli walked up to her and said, "You can have mine." And she gave it to her. She is always thinking of others and will give anything she has to help someone who is sad. She loves to help out with the baby and loves to help around the house most of the time. She is a joy to have in our home and we are so blessed that she is part of our family! Love you Peanut!

Mayli had a fun birthday. She got to go to school and bring cupcakes to celebrate with her class. I had a wisdom tooth extracted on her birthday so I wasn't in a party mood. She was so kind and understanding. Daddy took her and her sisters to Arctic Circle for dinner and then when they came home we had cupcakes that the girls helped decorate. The next night we had her birthday dinner of homemade chicken noodle soup. She was so excited. Happy 6th birthday!
